We are Beecher, where knowledge is brought alive!
At our school, we bring knowledge from many disciplines and eras to life. Beecher takes a “hands on” approach to learning, using theme-based and object-based studies to help students explore, apply and create knowledge in both individual and group projects. Students present their conclusions through quarterly exhibitions, portfolios and publications. Schoolwide "Exhibition Nights" are opportunities for classrooms to become museums and students become docents. Through museum field trips and classroom visits by museum professionals, our students learn how to make connections as robust, curious thinkers and explorers.
How to Know Beecher is Uniquely Right for Your Child:
○ Your child has an interest in exploring science and social studies topics deeper and discovering the links between these contents and their connection to their personal experiences.
○ Your child loves hands-on learning.
○ Your child is curious and interested in sharing what they have learned and know.
